Summer Love

June is right around the corner.....wow!  It will be my 1st anniversary of being in card making and blogging worlds.  Yeah, yahoo!  I hope this next year will be just as much of a blast as the first year has been. 
So I guess to end my 1st year, I would enter my newest creation into The Greeting Farm's FFF Challenge of Summer Love. 
The camera and lighting did not seem to pick up the full colors of this card.  The upper embellishment bling should be same pink as those on lower portion of card.  I found a cute 3D flower to add to her hair that went great with those background flowers.  This card is done with The Greeting Farm stamp called the Geisha Anya which is colored with colored pencils.  A flower Spellbinder die cut used.  Stamped background was also colored with colored pencils.  Pink and brown colored card stock.  I also then  ribbon with same colors looked like a good choice to add to card too.
Thanks for stopping in to view this post.  I hope you have a happy scrappy day!!

Happy Mother's Day

Wow!  Can you believe it's already the middle of May and in the midst of celebrating Mother's Day?  Amazing how time can fly by  so quickly!  My Oh My!  Well as you can tell I had enough spare time this past week to do some what I like to call some "power scrapping".....lol.  Here is another Mother's Day card I put together for a special someone. 
Supplies used on this are white card stock, three design papers,  a flower embossing folder lightly colored in with colored pencils, Martha Stewart Heart punch, Super Secret Stamp Club's Series is 005-Beauty which has been colored with colored pencils.  Sentiments are from SP & Company and Recollections which are done in Rhubarb colored ink.  Ribbon, and pearls are from Michael's Store. 

Bright and Shiny Birthday

Besides the normal busy work week and regular routine stuff to do, this weekend is filled with special events of multiple birthdays and Mother's Day celebrations.  Whoop, whoop.  This is a quick post to show another birthday card made for a family member's birthday.  I tried to keep it rather on the simple side so the beautiful background paper could shine and be admired for all its beauty.  Hope you like it......

Supplies used for this card are white card stock, purple card stock, two different design papers, the Super Secret Stamp Club's Series named Hood from The Greeting Farm.  Hood is colored with color pencils.  Sentiment is done by a Martha Stewart Punch, and the clear with purple design inside embellishments to add a bit more bling to this shiney card.
Thanks for stopping in to view my latest creation.  I would like to wish you a happy scrappy day!

Gone Fishing

One Saturday while out shopping around on some local Garage/Yard Sales, I came across scrapbook and card making supplies.  What a find and awesome haul it was!  Too much to list out but well over $175.00 worth of stuff for only $20.00.  I'm excited and I had my eye on several little things I knew exactly what and for whom it would be for.  This past weekend, I had to put together a card for a dear friend of ours birthday.  Per the card, you can fairly guess what his favorite past time is fishing.  One of the packets of the yard sale haul happened to have an outdoors' man type of theme and in it was this stuff for fishing which I think made the ideal card for our friend.  I'm hoping he likes it.
Thanks for stopping in and viewing this......I hope you like it.
All the design papers and stickers for this card were within a packet from Memories Collection from the Ever After Scrapbook Company.  Stamp is La La Land's Fisherman Luka which is colored with colored pencils, and the finishing touch of a fly fish hook in his hat is from the Memories Collection packet of the Ever After Scrapbook Company. Happy Birthday stamp is from a pack of sentiments but cannot recall the company name. 
All for now .....   I hope you have a happy scrappy day!!

Frozen In Time

I was shocked at how effortless this card all came together.  One day after school,  my Granddaughter KK and myself were stamping and coloring up some new stamps I had gotten in the mail.  One of the stamps we were working with was the Super Secret Stamp Club Hooded.  I started coloring the Hooded girl and before I know it, KK is commenting that its reminding her of Elsa from the Disney movie Frozen.  She gave me a great idea and I ran with it....Frozen theme....Hmmm.  It did not take me long to think up something, and I knew exactly what paper I wanted to use and then started digging through my embellishment supplies to find something closely related to frozen theme. Got to just love it when the creative process just flows smoothly.  So, here is the finished card.  I hope you like it and thanks for stopping in to take a look.
Card is made up of White card stock, several pattern papers, the embellishment buttons and strips with snowflakes are from my supply, clocks are from an embossing folder. Stamp is Hooded which is part of the Super Secret Stamp Club Collection from The Greeting Farm.  TGF also has a digi named Icy which could also make a great Frozen theme card as well, so now I can't wait to get that one printed up and colored too.  I hope everyone has a happy scrappy day!

Red Hatter Mother's Day

Mother's Day is almost upon us.  Yikes!   I have been trying to think of something that would be rather on the unique side instead of what I always seem to lean towards for a Mother's Day greeting card.  I happen to come across some paper that jumped out at me and I thought it might just work at making this the most unique card yet.  Well, as you can see by the theme of it, my Mom is a Red Hatter.  I am hoping she will like it as much as all the other more traditional cards I usually give her.  So here is the creation I came up with for a unique and out of the ordinary Mother's Day card....

Several different pattern papers of the Red Hat collection by K&Company, stamp is Marci from the La La Land Company, embellishments, colored pencils used to color Marci.
